In its first 7 issues it hosted only Italian texts, from issue 8 it started to include Greek translations of Italian texts or Greek works alongside their Italian translation. Its almost 3,500 pages host columns of general literary interest and news, poems, short stories, serialized novels, book reviews and tributes to famous writers, there is no shortage of advertisements for literary magazines, travel agencies and tobacco companies.
